Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chrysler 300 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Toyota Avalon with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Avalon, the Chrysler 300 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chrysler 300 as you will with the Toyota Avalon, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Chrysler 300 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Avalon. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Chrysler 300 is much higher than that for the Toyota Avalon.

Dimensions
Since the Chrysler 300 is much wider than the Toyota Avalon, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Chrysler 300 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Avalon.

Handling
The Chrysler 300 has about the same turning radius as the Toyota Avalon, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Chrysler 300 has less horsepower than the Toyota Avalon, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the Chrysler 300 and the Toyota Avalon do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chrysler 300 and the Toyota Avalon.

Warranty
The Chrysler 300 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Avalon.
